    Flim Flam, Nicky Holloway, The Pirate, Thames Poly ... Of the age, from the time, essential then and now timeless - undervalued

      Beautifully packaged and one of the best compilations of a golden era for dancing.
      Amazed this is so undervalued, frankly it’s a bargain.

        So there I was aged 15 round at my friend's house whilst he baby sat. His other much older friend had lent him two c.d.s. Both had the word acid written on the inlay cover. One was called Acid Jazz so we gave that a listen and after skipping through all the tracks within minutes (yes it was pretty lame) we decided to listen to the next c.d. which was Various ‎– House Hallucinates Pump Up London Volume One.
        Sleezy D* I've Lost Control (Space Mix) comes blaring out of the speakers and we both looked at each other with a what the fuck is this????!!!!!!
        Hairs were literally standing up on the back of our necks! 9 minutes and 43 seconds later and we didn't even play the next track as we just had to hear this sound again!
        I mean we were serious Electro heads but what in the world was this alien sound all about? Why is this guy losing it but loving it at the same time? Those tranced out repetitive beats and claps and that twittery blippy sound was so weird that we were losing it and loving it at the same time.
        Hairs were still standing up like we had been plugged into the mains!
        Then next up Phuture - Acid Tracks!
        Boom boom boom with a sinister wave sound and then some claps and again this blippy sonar pulsing sound hit our ears. Then the blippy sound starts to liquify and then elevates into an incredible movement that twisted and turned inside out of itself. What the actual fuck was we experiencing.
        Alien sounds that totally intrigued us. We both were nodding our heads like we were hip-hoppers on some next electro type shit!
        So again we played this track in all of its entirety!
        Tracks B1 and B2 kind of deflated our feelings but not to worry as tracks B3 through to D3 perked us back up (and with no drugs)!
        This was my first introduction to Chicago Acid Trax and what a way to get affiliated!
        A week or so later I bought Acid Trax Volume 2 and I never looked back!

        Acid acid acid house (repeat!)

        So fast forwarding to this precise moment. Listening to this LP again today is still totally amazing! This is like an audio acid bible and for anyone who has never heard this type of music I would 1000% recommend this compilation! Stunning! THIS IS ACID!

          Classic album. The first track with Sleazy D features Jabba the Hut on vocals (ha ha ha ha ha)

              This is where it all began for me. I bought it on tape in '88 aged 13. I couldn't describe what it sounded like to anyone - it didn't sound like anything I'd ever heard before. When it was my turn to supply the sounds for the school music lesson THIS is what they got. Needless to say a very small minority actually _got_ it...
              Viva Acid House..!

                This double gatefolds release is the best one ! Graham Tunna & Jeremy Pearce made a wonderfull psychedelic design cover sleeve. When u open it u can also see a big " ACID". They also added inside the covers, if u take time to look , a serie of printed green pills & E's. These attentions & details are only on the UK release. Not on the similar U.S.A. edition.
                I can also mention there was many releases of this Trax Records compilation, with different names : House Allucinates - Pump Up London ; House Allucinates - Pump Up Europe (different cover sleeve); House Allucinates - Pump Up The World & We Call It Allucinates on Westside Records.
